Avenue A by Adidas *SPOILERS*

Recommended Posts

Got my box and love it! My sizing choices are a bit off, I need to update my profile from a medium to a large for both tops and bottoms. This is my second box and the sizes were fine last quarter, but I can tell the shorts will be too small and probably the tank as well. But....my sister is a serious runner and I know she will be happy to take them from me ( they will be perfect for her lifestyle and body shape).

The slides are cute, but one size too large. I selected a 7 1/2 and was sent a size 8, probably since they only come in whole sizes and they figured better too big than too small. They are soooooo comfortable and squishy that I will just cinch down the top flap and they'll be fine. :)

 

Super box, very happy and can't wait to start playing with my new tracker watch.

My sister said that Avenue A told her to keep her slides and shorts, they'll send her new ones that fit her size better! 

 

I might actually try the slides and see if they fit me, she got a size 9 slide (I assume they don't do half sizes) but she's an 8.5, I think. I'm a size 10 shoe, so maybe they'll fit me? 

 

She's going to give her size small shorts to a friend and get a size medium from Avenue A. That's really generous of them, did anyone else try size exchanging?

Is anyone very familiar with Adidas products?  I am wondering how much difference there is between the different sizes of tank and slides.  The tank is a bit snug in the bust and the slides are a large (but not falling off large) on me.  Not sure whether to try to get different sizes or if they would then be too small.  (For some reason Adidas is not carried in stores locally though I am not in a rural area.  I wasn't able to find anything 'Adidas' in four five shops I tried so I gave up and just guessed--hard because I don't usually wear work out gear.)  Thanks!

I'm not that familiar with Adidas, only what I've received in the past two boxes. I think their sizing is maybe a little on the smaller side although the slides seem to be bigger. Maybe because they are slides and the design of it. They are a little big on me too but I'm going to keep them. I'm afraid that sizing down would be too small.

Yesssss!!!! If that's not the black shoe I posted when I was speculating about this box, it's close!  SO EXCITED!!!  Something like this has been on my wishlist for months but I couldn't justify buying more shoes :)

The fall spoiler is the AdiZero Boston Shoe in black, which is $120 and is not currently available on the adidas website. 

 

Here are some details and reviews from runner's world - sounds like a great shoe!  Love the gray/purple version in their image too.

MSA also said that the fall box is curated by Kate Citron and Rebecca Willa Davis, not Rita Ora.  Guess Rita was just doing an Avenue A or regular adidas commercial after all?  Here are their well+good bios:

I wonder if Rita is spring. Who knows when the videos are filmed. Like Morgan Brian's had to be done for a long time before that because she was out with the national team. Not saying she couldn't have done it while out with them, just that it seems likely it was older.

I just received my box - yay!  I definitely need to resize the shorts and possibly the sneakers but am having problems with the exchange form (according to the site my order number from the email does not exist).  Hopefully Customer Service can assist.

Have the same issue about order number.

How does their sizing run? According to their website a small = size 8-10. Do you feel like the items fit kind of equal to the numeric numbers?

For this box, I thought the sizing ran small on the shorts and shirt. I ordered a M (12-14) and they were more consistent with a size 10. The slides are rounded up in whole numbers so they will most likely be slightly big for everyone.  The sneakers for me are running true to size although one foot is slightly tighter than the other (kind of oddly so).

I got my box this morning. Needless to say the packaging did not survive long in my hands (my fastest time opening a box yet!). My humble two cents:

 

  • Love the shoes- quite comfortable and lightweight.
  • Tank top and shorts are cute, lightweight, and feel very comfortable on.
  • Excited to try out the tracker and compare it to my Fitbit Charge HR.
  • Headband- I needed one so I'm glad that they included this in the box.
  • Slides- I usually wear 9.5 in shoes but they sent me size 10 slides (I guess these don't come in half sizes). Way too big for me so I emailed them this morning about exchanging them for size 9. Received a response a few hours later that they placed a new order for size 9 slides for me and that I can keep the original pair. Their customer service is stellar!

Gee, I wonder what I will be donning for my evening jog tonight...

 

Last but not least, didn't have to wait long at all for spoilers for the Fall box. Yay!

I was really confused about the sizing too for the clothing so I stopped by Macy's last month and tried on some of the adidas merchandise to get an idea about the sizes and fit. This really helped me out a lot since I have a horrible track record with online orders and sizing...

I actually went through their website (logged into my account, then clicked on the "Request an Exchange" link, spent 10 minutes trying to figure out the order number field, filled out the form, and hit send). The email response that I got came from: [email protected] If going thru their website didn't work, then definitely go thru the above email address and use the subject line: Avenue A Exchange to get their attention. Hope you get a response soon!

I think you had the same issue I did with order number so you have to write Customer Service.  I actually heard back within an hour of the email so I would definitely write them again. Are you using the avenue a email address?

Thanks.  What is the trick for the order number field?  It kept saying mine was invalid (and, truly, the number in my order confirmation email did not meet the criteria given for that field).

    • You might be in shape otherwise but still have a lump of fat jutting out from under your chin. And we agree, that totally spoils all the photos. But why don't you use makeup to get rid of double chin till such time you lose enough weight to get a chiseled jaw line? So even if you haven't managed to shed all that extra flab yet, but have a party that you just can't miss, don't get upset about the double chin. You can still use makeup cleverly to hide it and look fabulous in all your photos. Here are some makeup hacks that will come in handy:
    • The trick to take care of dry skin is to feed it with moisture. But, there's a drawback, we cannot overfeed it as it may lead to breakouts, acne, and pimples. Therefore, it is important to use the right product that helps to hydrate the skin without much harm.  So how do we combat dry skin?  Here are our favourite and effective product that helps to fight the dry flaky skin.  Cosrx - Hyaluronic Hydra Power Essence Hyaluronic Acid is the king of moisturization and this essence by Cosrx is full of it. It draws water into the skin and immediately moisturizes the dry & depleted skin.  Results: Skin is softer and moisturized, leaving bumpy and dry skin silky smooth. It's excellent for dry to normal skin types.  Some By Mi-H7 Hydromax Moisture Cream The name uses the word hydro max moisture to convey that nothing hydrates better than this! It soothes skin irritation, reduces skin redness and wrinkles. It also has a whitening effect and smoothes rough patches of skin. The 7 types of hyaluronic acid fill in from the deepest layer of the skin and create a barrier so that it can maintain the optimum moisture for a prolonged time. Make sure to use it after cleansing the skin.  -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Face Masks are excellent for providing ample moisture and long term hydration to the skin.  Here are our recommendations: Eunyul- Natural Moisture Mask Pack Lined with green tea extract, the facemask works to provide ample moisture to the skin while the collagen helps to reboot the skin in a short time.  Missha-Airy Fit Sheet Mask (Cucumber) This eco-friendly rice cake sheet mask is 2 times thinner than a normal sheet mask. Cucumber helps to effectively help combat dryness while the thin sheet mask feels airy and lightweight. 
    • People tend to collect an amazing quantity of items over the years. Reasons for keeping items include an emotional attachment, an intention to reuse or fix the items in the future, or a wish to pass them on to others. However, for many items, if you haven't used them in over a year, you probably don't need them. Getting some help from https://www.emop.co.uk/clapham-cleaner/ to get rid of all your rubbish isn't a bad move. Don’t want to do it yourself? These people have you covered. Leave all the heavy lifting work to them. With a professional firm like eMop, you don’t need to worry about the pick-up or disposal of those old items that you don't need any more.
    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.
